  • The museum building is beautiful, its very important collection, however, the preservation of the building and the collection leaves much to be desired.

  • The Museum of Folklore and Anthropology Théo Brandão, was a rich surprise amidst the paradisiacal scenery of Maceió. Located less than four blocks from the Metropolitan Cathedral of Maceió the museum is housed in a beautiful mansion of the last century, has three floors with rooms aimed at exposing the history, evolution, richness and cultural diversity of the state of Alagoas. Much has attracted me to the sculptures containing adorntions of tipico garments, ceramics or even symbolic objects of the religious beliefs of Alagoas. The second floor in my humble opinion is the richest, possesses folk adornments as a sculpture of my ox Bumba, props of the traditional group of ribbons, banners of cultural ceremonies and much more. The only caveat that I do is that the displacement between one floor and another is difficult locomotion for the elderly or people with special needs, since the access stairs are narrow, with fine steps and very old structure, there is an elevator in the access but at the moment Of my visit was in disuse. The experience has been validated, rich and I suggest that anyone who has the opportunity to visit the museum.
